Retrace Lewis and Clark’s Trail at UW presentation
For the Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD – UW-Stevens Point at Marshfield Continuing Education is offering the lecture class, Retracing Lewis and Clark’s Trail on Feb. 7, 6-8 p.m.
Professor emeritus, Don Halloran will recap his journey retracing Lewis & Clark’s Trail in a birch bark canoe. Over many summers, Halloran and his wife retraced the entire transcontinental water route that Louis and Clark followed in their exploration of the soon to be expanded United States. This entertaining presentation includes 19th Century historical and political perspectives leading to the expedition. Surprisingly, much of the Louis and Clark route is still intact and quite wild some 200 years later. Participants will learn how they can plan their own adventure exploring all or part of this historic trail.
Don Halloran is currently an emeritus professor, having taught biology and human physiology at the Marshfield campus for 26 years. In the past he was a Montana smoke-jumper, US Navy Medic, grizzly bear researcher and an African Peace Corps volunteer studying wild animals such as elephants and buffalo.
